Indica dominant Swiss Cheese weed is a cross between two well regarded strains, Cheese and Swiss Miss. Cheese is a British creation that’s previously won placings in the High Times Cannabis Cup, and Swiss Miss was created in Switzerland from an early Skunk type and an Indica from Nepal.
Swiss Cheese weed has a pungent skunk aroma which can fill a room quickly. The flavour is sweeter than the smell with notes of berries and a certain muskiness. The hit is powerful and fast-acting with a soaring euphoria that quite quickly transforms into a relaxing, somewhat sedated high that can lead to couchlock. It’s a good evening smoke for zoning out in front of a movie. Medically, Swiss Cheese cannabis can help with insomnia and muscular pain.
Swiss Cheese seeds produce plants that grow to around 1.5 metres with a tight structure, not many side stems and dark green leaves. The buds are large and dense and covered in a layer of sticky crystals, and THC content ranges from 18 to 20 percent.
Indoors, you’ll get good results from Swiss Cheese cannabis by growing it in soil using the SOG growing system. The plants grow vigorously and are resistant to disease and pests. Flowering time is a relatively short six to seven weeks and yields are between 400 to 500 grams per square metre.
This is a hardy plant, so you can grow it outdoors in all but the coolest climates. In northern Europe, a May planting will result in plants ready to harvest in the first half of September.
This robust, easy-to-grow strain is highly recommended for novice growers. Its dependable yields and high THC levels mean that Swiss Cheese weed is also popular with experienced horticulturists.
